You spoke and the Earth and Heaven came into existence.
Your power hung the sun, the moon, and stars.
By Your charge the seasons and day where set in place.
At Your command, the land formed and the mountain rose.
By Your authority, the sky and seas knows their limit.
Your might is great beyond our understanding.
Nothing is too great or impossible for You to do.
You are the author of all life in existence.
Every form of life came from Your great imagination.
At Your directive every animal and plant was created
According to Your instructions and wisdom
From the giant redwood to the minute nat.
At Your decree the angels came into being
And they willing obey your every decree.
With Your hand You did take clay and shape man
In Your image, likeness, and glory
In perfect form for the task, You have for him.
Then You counted his days and breathe into him life
Knowing everything that he would ever accomplish
And showing mercy for the failures he would create.
You poured out Your excessive love upon him
And declared that all You created was very good.
